University of Idaho Administration Building

General Building Safety

University buildings are subject to numerous codes and standards that are designed to ensure the safety of building occupants. These regulations pertain not only to building features but the operations performed within buildings as well.


Code issues that may arise that pertain to the structural elements of a building are addressed by both Environmental Health and Safety and Facilities.


Operational compliance issues are usually created by changes in occupant methods or a change in procedures that directly affect the building occupancy classification, or the safety of others within the building. It is important for all occupants to understand the need to consult with Architectural and Engineering Services before making changes in the use of spaces or adding any new operations to additional spaces.


For a review of the codes and standards that apply to University buildings, see http://dbs.idaho.gov/rules/2011/2011_BB_Statutes_Rules_Pkt.pdf and http://www.doi.idaho.gov/sfm/firemars.aspx.


Each University of Idaho Building is equipped with safety features such as fire exits, extinguishers and alarm pulls. Additionally, other equipment, such as back-up generators, emergency lighting, and fume hoods may be of concern in case of emergency. Each building is unique, so it is good to familiarize yourself with the procedures and locations of these devices in all the buildings you frequent.
